Members of County Durham British National Party teamed up with Andrew Brons MEP and members from Yorkshire BNP to take the party’s ‘Bring Our Boys Home’ campaign to the historic Georgian market town of Richmond in North Yorkshire, reports correspondent Pete Molloy.
“Some activists went out to mingle with people visiting the market, while others manned a stall outside the regimental museum of the Green Howards,” Mr Molloy said.
Well-known BNP stalwart Mark Walker sad that the team had “a really positive day of action with plenty of local people wanting to sign our petition.”
Richmond is only 3 miles north of Catterick Garrison, which has already had a number of fatalities in Afghanistan.
“We need to bring our armed forces back from being involved in a war that is of no concern to us before the local community lose loved ones and I lose any more of my constituents,” Mr Brons added.
